We’re Making Space in the podcast space.

Making Space is our love letter to new and diverse podcast voices. Through this program, we aim to invest in the future of audio creation by providing historically marginalized groups a safe, accessible place to have their voices heard. These places will be local minority-owned businesses that house podcasting equipment for their communities to use.

As Spotify's free, all-in-one podcast tool, we aim to democratize audio by lowering the barrier of entry and making it easy for anyone to make a podcast without the experience or resources that are typically associated with it.
